It is true that some of these new extensions are considerably more expensive to register than TLDs like .com or .net, and many of our current ccTLDs. The costs for ccTLDs are set by the various registries and are often quite high and there are currency conversion issues to deal with. Another part of cost equation is the amount of manual processing involved. In some cases direct intervention by a human is required to process certain ccTLDs and that cost is reflected in the cost to consumers of these domains.
